Morpheus8 in New Jersey

Certain factors like genetics, lifestyle choices, and age can cause our skin to develop displeasing imperfections. One of the most noticeable signs of aging is skin laxity, which can occur due to decreased elastin and collagen production. Skin laxity can affect many areas of the body, creating an aged appearance. Morpheus8 by InMode is a revolutionary, non-surgical, fractional skin tightening treatment that tightens loose skin, improves tone and texture, and delivers healthy glowing skin from the inside, out.

What is Morpheus8?

Board Certified Female Plastic Surgeon Dr. Beverly Friedlander

Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that combines the skin tightening of radiofrequency with the anti-aging benefits of microneedling. The RF (radiofrequency) energy is delivered deep into the tissue with the help of a silicone-coated microneedling tip, targeting the tissue up to 5mm deep where it will have the greatest effect, without the worry of damaging the skin. The fractionated RF stimulates a renewal of collagen and elastin, the structural proteins of your skin, resulting in an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles and a more radiant and youthful appearance. This treatment can also be used on any areas of the body that need subdermal renewal and allows for tissue contraction and fat remodeling.

What is the Benefit of Combining Radiofrequency with Microneedling?

Beverly Friedlander, MD

As we age, our skin loses firmness and resiliency, resulting in increasing laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles. These are caused by multiple changes in the layers of our skin. The microneedling addresses the superficial changes in our skin, but with Morpheus8, we can also target the deeper layers simultaneously. The RF energy delivers controlled heat to boost collagen and elastin production deeper in your skin. This anti-aging effect (in essence, a strengthening and remodeling of your collagen) not only results in a visible improvement in the texture, tone, and appearance of your skin but in more youthful contours and radiant skin.

What is Forma?

Forma uses the same radiofrequency (RF) that is used in Morpheus8 as an isolated treatment. The RF energy gently heats the tissue to the optimal temperature for collagen production in a controlled fashion.

This stimulates the formation of new collagen, improving skin elasticity over time. It is suitable for individuals seeking a non-invasive improvement to skin tone and texture and can be combined with other treatments, such as HydraFacial, dermal fillers, and neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport, as well as Lumecca IPL for an overall improvement. Forma is safe for all skin types and is ideal for small areas on the face and body. Forma is non-painful; the treatment has been compared to a hot stone massage. There is no downtime, although your skin may appear flushed initially. It is recommended as weekly treatments for six to eight weeks.

Where Can Morpheus8 Be Used?

Morpheus8 can be used anywhere on the body where you have loose or crepey skin. Treatable areas include the face, neck, décolleté, arms, abdomen, knees, and any areas with stretch marks or sagging. Morpheus8 can be combined with other treatments such as PRP or Lumecca IPL for even greater benefits.

What Can I Expect During My Morpheus8 Treatment?

True Beauty Med Spa

Morpheus8 is a non-surgical treatment that is performed in our office. A topical anesthetic will be applied about one hour before the procedure. During your New Jersey Morpheus8 treatment at True Beauty Med Spa, the device will deliver RF energy as the microneedling penetrates the skin’s surface to a depth of two to four millimeters. You may feel a warm sensation as the RF heats the deeper tissue in a controlled fashion to improve collagen production and skin tone and texture.

How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Will I Need?

After an in-depth skin analysis is performed, a personalized course of treatment will be reviewed. We want to ensure that your concerns are addressed and that you can feel confident about your skin again. When it comes to Morpheus8 New Jersey patients will find that optimal results usually require three treatments, but can vary depending on your age and the degree of damage. You can expect to see improvement after the first treatment, similar to that seen with microneedling alone. The skin tightening effects of the RF are additive and become more noticeable after the second and third treatments. Following your initial treatment, it is recommended that you consider maintenance procedures once or twice a year.

What Will My Morpheus8 Recovery Be Like?

Beverly Friedlander, MD

Because Morpheus8 is a non-invasive treatment, there is little downtime required. That means you can return to routine activities. After treatment with Morpheus8 New Jersey patients will apply a balm that will be supplied. You will need to liberally reapply this balm over the next 24 to 48 hours as the tiny openings created by the microneedling close down. Moisturizers and sunscreen can be applied after two to three days. Maintaining a proper skincare routine and limiting sun exposure will help prolong your results.

What Risks and Side Effects Are Involved with Morpheus8?

Any risks or side effects involved with Morpheus8 treatment are minimal. There will be some redness after the procedure. Oftentimes, patients report “micro scabs”. This, along with any mild swelling or bruising, resolves after a few days. Makeup is not needed but can be applied if desired.

What Results Can I Expect with Morpheus8?

Some patients see an immediate improvement in their skin quality and texture. Results with Morpheus8 are typically seen after two to three weeks but can continue to improve up to three months as new collagen is deposited into the tissue. You can expect to see beautiful, youthful, healthy skin that you will be proud to show off.
